Pirates of the Caribbean actor Johnny Depp has been trying to liquidate much of his extensive real estate holdings including a village in France and a series of Los Angeles penthouses. A Kentucky horse farm he has purchased twice is going to auction on September 15th.
Depp was born in Owensboro, Kentucky in 1963 and grew up surrounded by horse farms. Early in his movie career in 1995, Johnny bought the 41-acre farm for his mother Betty Sue Palmer.. He sold the farm in 2001 but bought it back in 2005.
Depp’s farm includes a 6,000-square-foot house, guest house/manager’s quarters, three barns, 15 stalls and ten paddocks with automatic watering system. The main house consists of six bedrooms, seven baths, recently renovated kitchen and master bedroom, dining room and wet bar, family room and adjoining sun room. There is also a swimming pool and four-car garage.
The farm is six miles west of the Lexington, Kentucky beltway and two miles to the Bluegrass Airport, directly across from Keeneland Race Course. The eastern property line of the farm abuts Westmoreland subdivision also offering the possibility of future residential development. The original list price was $3.4 million, recently reduced to $2.9 million.
